Description: Rudy Rucker, a world-famous mathematician and a descendant of the philosopher Hegel, is the author of a number of popular science books including the bestselling The Fourth Dimension. In Saucer Wisdom, he creates a non-fiction novel, using himself as the central character. Rucker, the character, is given views of the future of technology and society, especially in California, by a man abducted by the inhabitants of a tiny flying saucer.

Rucker describes, and illustrates with delightful cartoon sketches, the world of the progressively more distant future as it is transformed by computer technology, biotechnology, and human evolution. Popular science writing is never going to be the same. Saucer Wisdom also includes an introduction by cyber guru Bruce Sterling and dozens of line illustrations by the author.
